This is a 1970 Chevy El Camino SS*. I am in the military and I am moving to Louisiana in May, so I need to sell this vehicle before then. Here are the features: -Engine : New 5.7L 350ci GM crate motor; it has ~7,800 miles on the motor itself. -Engine compartment: -New 4bbl 600cfm Edelbrock carburetor (Endurashine chrome) with manual choke. -New chrome intake manifold -New chrome valve covers and oil filter -New chrome air filter -New chrome water pump/pulleys/brackets -New chrome power steering pump/pulleys/brackets -New alternator (I have a chrome version as well, but it wasn't generating enough energy. I will throw it in for free if you'd like to rebuild it) -Factory AC (I took the belt off because it was old/worn, haven't replaced it). -Bought a new starter in ~October 2012 -Frame: I bought the car in Las Vegas a few years ago. The car was originally manufactured in California, and the vehicle has been in the desert the past 40 years, so it probably has the best frame of any El Camino on the road, in terms of rust. The vehicle is maintained in an environment free from smoke and rust. -Body: -Paint: Has a relatively new blue paint job. Original paint was dark red with black stripes. The paint has a few chips here and there, and there's a dent in the right side, but overall it still looks good. -Has Torq Thrust rims -Cooper Cobra tires with white lettering -Cowl Induction hood -New Xenon headlights and brights. They are bright, but not blue-colored. -Free, new car cover ($100-$200 value) -Interior (black with chrome lining): -Aftermarket radio: Panasonic stereo/CD player with Bluetooth capabilities. -Aftermarket amp and speaker (both easily removable), located behind the passenger's seat (see pictures). -New headliner and dome light set. The upholstery looks great. -Originally column shifter, but was moved to a floor shift (automatic transmission) -Has a pair of leather Lincoln seats (which I will say are super comfy, and surprisingly not that hot in the summer) instead of the bench. -Truck bed has a nice liner. -I'm currently trying to restore the steering wheel horn button. -The electrical wiring is old, so lights may occasionally go out. -The odometer is off. It currently says 5,185.2 miles. The odometer itself still adds one mile for each mile traveled, but it recently rolled over. It also shows only white on the 10,000s digit, meaning that you will get up to 9,999 before it rolls over again. I do not know the mileage of the vehicle, but I have recorded the engine's emplacement mileage at 7,392, which would mean that the engine's overall mileage is approximately 7,793 miles. *SS status: This section is for those collectors out there who are wondering how the car was originally manufactured. Using just the VIN, I can tell that it is at least a "custom" model and not a "base", and all SSes were customs. It is more likely than not that it was an SS. However, from what I've researched, the only way to actually prove whether an El Camino was originally an SS is to show a build sheet

GM looks to combat high theft rates on SUVs with added tech

Tue, 24 Dec 2013 14:30:00 EST

The Cadillac Escalade has been at or near the top of most-stolen and insurance-loss lists for more than seven years, until it dropped to number six earlier this year. In 2011 it was fitted with a host of new security features to address its easy-to-override features and that has brought the number of thefts down, but when eight of the ten most stolen rides are large SUVs from General Motors, no one will argue that something else needs to be done.
Thus, GM has fitted this same theft-deterring tech to the 2015 Suburban, Tahoe and Yukon. The Suburban and Tahoe will get the steering lock that the Escalade and Yukon already get, plus bolted-down third-row seats to deter thefts like this, stronger door lock cylinders and shields, and side-cut keys to inhibit picking.
Additional security measures in a Theft Protection Package can be purchased for $395, consisting of sensors on the greenhouse glass and interior, an incline/tilt sensor and added "key control systems" to make it more difficult for the men in black balaclavas to steal what you bought.

GM recalling 118K Colorado, Canyon pickups over missing hood latches

Thu, 20 Dec 2012 11:27:00 EST

General Motors has announced a recall of 118,800 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon pickup trucks due to the possibility of secondary hood latches not being installed at the time of manufacture. The affected vehicles are from the 2010, 2011 and 2012 model years, all of which were built between November 9, 2009 and August 28, 2012.
According to the official National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report, these trucks fail to "comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 113, 'Hood Latch System.' The hood may be missing the secondary hood latch." In other words, owners of these trucks could find their vehicles' hoods opening unexpectedly while driving.
The official recall campaign is expected to begin on January 17, 2013. Dealers will inspect the affected pickups and if a secondary hood latch is not present, one will be installed free of charge. Scroll down to read the official NHTSA report.

GM recalling over 243,000 crossovers over possible seat belt defect

The summer of 2010's recall hit parade continues unabated today, with General Motors having just announced that it is asking 243,403 owners of its 2009-2010 Lambda crossovers to bring their three-row haulers in for inspection. The culprit? Second-row seat belts in select Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia, and Saturn Outlook CUVs have "failed to perform properly in a crash."
According to GM, a second-row seat-side trim piece is to blame, as it can impede the upward rotation of the buckle after the seat is folded flat. As a result, if the buckle makes contact with the seat frame, cosmetic damage can occur, potentially requiring additional force to operate the buckle properly. So far, no great shakes, but in the process of applying that additional force, the occupant may push the buckle cover down to the strap, potentially revealing and depressing the red release button. As a result of this, the belt may not latch, or in certain cases, it may actually appear to be latched when, in fact, it isn't.
